On Wednesdays the girls have a short day at school, and this is an ideal day for play dates. This week they had Cathlynn over for a play date. She is Dutch as well, so the girls speak Dutch with a mix of English to each other... so funny to hear!
All 3 of them are really into art, so they enjoyed this for a while, but this time they spend so much time going outside and playing in the park... I was so surprised! Because my girls normally are not the outdoorsy types... unfortunately. They are more the kind of reading books and staying inside, but here in SA we have almost always nice weather, so I was hoping that they would enjoy more of the outdoors... but reading is not bad either!!
Cathlynn also stayed over for dinner, but after school I first made a real Dutch treat: poffertjes. Since all 3 girls are Dutch I knew they would appreciate this treat, another kid from another country will maybe not have the taste for it, although it is sweet and like a small pancake.. who doesn't like pancakes?? You need a special pan for it, with small holes where the filling fits right in. And then you sprinkle it with powdered sugar... lots of it!
For dinner I made home made fries, and home made apple sauce because in Holland that goes together! And chicken wings marinated in yogurt overnight... yum yum. I am thinking when I was a child I would get home made fries all the time when I would go to my aunties house...
Maybe I should make Wednesdays the home made fries day. Start a new tradition, what do you think? Do you have certain foods on certain days?? So far I cook almost every week something different but from a kids point of view it is maybe nice to have some traditions?... I am not such a traditional person, but I might change my mind on this one....
Have a good day y'all!
